Fire Helmets

Fire Knight is first Gallet fire helmet for US sales

A note about Gallet:

In May 2002, MSA bought CGF Gallet of France, the leading European manufacturer of protective helmets for the fire service and specialized head protection for law enforcement, aviation, and military personnel.

This acquisition strengthens MSAís presence in the European fire service market by uniting their dominant fire helmet brand with our top CairnsHelmets line. Gallet will continue to operate from near Lyon, France, and become part of MSA Europe.

HEF-GalletFirstKnight1.jpg (65809 bytes)The Fire Knight fire helmet is the one helmet that Gallet manufactures that meets the NFPA 1971-2000 standard. Itís a jet-style or pirate-style helmet (as opposed to "traditional" or "modern" styles) that some firefighters prefer.

Designed for structural firefighting, the Fire Knight features a "jet-style" outer shell with retractable parabolic faceshield to maximize user coverage while minimizing the helmetís profile. The Fire Knight helmet is available in white, yellow, orange, black, red, or blue, with a variety of accessories. It meets the Standard on Protective Ensemble for Structural Firefighting.
